Developer Obsidian Entertainment has posted a walkthrough for their new game Alpha Protocol, a real-world espionage role-playing game.
Although still early in development, Alpha Protocol is starting to look a little bit like a real-world version of Mass Effect, with more of a focus on the role-playing aspects. It’s refreshing to see an RPG that doesn’t involve swords and magic or sci-fi weaponry. Obsidian Entertainment are the developer responsible for Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2, Neverwinter Nights 2 and the upcoming Fallout: New Vegas. Prior to the formation of Obsidian, most of the main staff worked at Interplay’s now defunct Black Isle Studios, working on games like Fallout and Fallout 2. Given Obsidian’s pedigree, I think Alpha Protocol is a game to watch.
Alpha Protocol is due out October 2009.
